Three from Himachal school held for CBSE paper leak

Three from Himachal school held for CBSE paper leak

Almost a week after two school teachers and a coaching centre tutor were arrested from New Delhi over the leak of CBSE Class 12 economics paper, the police today arrested three more people from Himachal Pradesh in the case.

Police in Himachal identified the teacher as Rakesh Kumar, of the DAV Centenary Public School in Una.

Police sources said a team of four officers of Delhi police visited the private school in Una and questioned the principal for about two hours on Friday.

The CBSE's academic unit at Rouse Avenue had on March 26 received some sheets of handwritten answers of economics paper in a blank envelope before the exam commenced. "Similar attempts were made in the past to disrupt smooth conduct of CBSE exams", HRD's School Education Secretary Anil Swarup said. Officials confirmed the involvement of the superintendent in the class 12 Economics paper leak. He also picked up a bundle of economics paper, Upadhayay said.

Rakesh, in turn, called one of his student of 12th Class who used to take tuition from him, who reduced it in her handwriting and thereafter Rakesh uploaded this handwritten Question paper of Economics in his mobile.

"No monetary exchanges have been found so far in investigation".

All the three - Rishabh (29) and Rohit (26), teachers at Mother Khajani Convent School, a private school in Bawana, and Tauqeer (26), a tutor at a private coaching centre there - were arrested, the police said. The SIT has interrogated over seventy people, including "WhatsApp" admins, school teachers, ground staff, students and others in connection with the leak. "We are also examining the CCTV footage of bank and questioning with bank employees is underway", he added. The police were able to revive the deleted conversation with help from the WhatsApp headquarters in California.

However, when it comes to the trail of handwritten papers that were circulated a day or two before the exam, police are sure that the leak happened either at the board level or the time when they are kept in the banks, the police officer privy to the probe said.
